Longshot, there's plenty of bushy tails all over VA. Check out the Game and Inland Fisheries site (http://www.dgif.state.va.us) and see if there's any wildlife management areas within driving distance for you. Or just try asking around. Most woods are pretty thick, so go for the big hardwoods if you can find them. Good luck.
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
